Security Message – LGBT Demonstration

U.S. Embassy Bishkek informs U.S. citizens that an anti-LGBT political organization is planning a demonstration scheduled to take place in Gorky Park on June 14, 2015 starting at 10:00 a.m.

We anticipate that this this event could turn confrontational and remind U.S. citizens that even events intended to be peaceful can quickly escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
